SLOBODIAN: Bernier seeks to save Canada from socialism
Canada is recklessly transforming itself into a socialist regime with astonishing speed and precision.
Why should we care? San Antonio, Texas Pastor John Hagee explains it best: âSocialism is communism with lipstick.
So when a prime minister says he admires the ruthless Chinese Communist Party, like Justin Trudeau did, the hair on the back of the head must stand on end.
Politicians, but for a few – because of mistakes, stupidity, cowardice, greed, corruption, undemocratic ideologies and self-interest – let slip our freedoms, our prosperity, our unity and our pride. national.
Maxime Bernier, leader of the People’s Party of Canada (PPC) says it is time to âtake back our countryâ.
By September 1, Bernier said the PPC will have a full list of 338 candidates for the federal election slated for fall.
âI can tell you that we are fighting a very important battle for the values ââof our Western civilization. It is a battle for our principles, for freedom. I know we will win this battle because we have the right ideas and the right principles. The challenge is, I don’t know when, âsaid Bernier Western standard.
âIt is important to fight to ensure that the country we love, the country we lived in, can return to what it was a few years ago.
Think about it. In only a few years Canada has taken a dark turn. It is sobering to think of what a few more years on the same path will bring.
It goes beyond dealing with COVID-19.
Trudeau has proven useful to globalists who despise the populations they want to control by zealously adopting their policies at the expense of Canadians.
The big reset, rebuild better, the new normal, climate change hysteria, the carbon footprint, fairness, open borders – Trudeau didn’t touch on these destructive things he is inflicting on Canadians. The globalists have done it.
âTrudeau is a globalist. But Trudeau runs the country. The United Nations and the World Health Organization do not impose laws on Canada. He believes in it personally, âsays Bernier.
The NDP and the Bloc QuÃ©bÃ©cois enthusiastically support it.
The leader of the official opposition, Erin O’Toole, offers some resistance, but seeks support from the left by watering down conservative values.
His party veers to the left “because their only objective is to be in power,” says Bernier.
âThey think that because 65-70% of the population is on the left, they want to go, and they think they’re going to win. In doing so, they give more credibility to these socialist ideas. They are not helping the country.
Canada is in big trouble. The biggest problem is not these traitors who can be eliminated in one election day.
They are voters tricked into embracing socialism, ignoring the curse that it is, and has been, through time.
Bernier knows this poses a challenge.
âI understand today that we are in a socialist era in Canada, not only in Canada but also in other countries. When you have a huge majority of the population in favor of socialism, you have to fight against that, âsays Bernier.
âI believe that the more we talk, we can convince more people. But this will take time. We will develop our base, step by step, we will win with our ideas.
Bernier’s problem is that he says drastic things, without excuses like:
“We must be proud of our country.
âCanada is a sovereign nation.
âWe are against globalism.
âThere is no systematic racism in this country.
A politician who does not choose his words carefully so as not to offend, refuses to twist like a plastic bag in the wind to flatter special interest groups, will not sell Canada or his soul for votes, deserves the ‘Warning.
Bernier is not afraid to say that we are being lied to about Bill C-36, a plot to amend the Criminal Code under the pretext of fighting hate online. It would impose fines of up to $ 70,000 and jail for 12 months.
âThe Liberals are dealing with every issue of race, sex and religion,â he says.
They label the critics as racists, fanatics and white supremacists.
“With C-36, their objective is clearly to frighten and silence all those who reject far-left wokism,” he says. “It’s worse than the C-10.”
The PPC would withdraw from the Paris Agreement and abolish the carbon tax.
It would overhaul Canada’s “unfair and inefficient” equalization formula that weighs on Alberta and Saskatchewan despite the downturn in the oil sector crippling their economies.
âWe are the only ones who partially solve this problem. O’Toole will not talk about the equalization formula, âsays Bernier.
Meanwhile, Bernier says the Conservatives don’t have to worry about the dynamics of split votes.
âWe will not be dividing the vote. The only person who is dividing the vote right now is O’Toole and he is dividing the Liberal votes because he is going to the left. He wants more support from Liberal voters in Quebec City, Toronto and Vancouver. That’s why he has the same platform as Trudeau. He takes Westerners for granted. He takes your vote for granted.
Bernier is scheduled to appear in Manitoba court on July 27 to face COVID-19 health order violation charges. He was handcuffed, arrested and jailed on June 11 during a visit – despite attempts to intimidate him to stay away – to protest COVID-19 lockdowns.
PPC is the only party fighting the blockages.
So who will fight the most for Canadians?
A politician willing to go to jail to defend freedoms, or the politicians who were behind his arrest or who have remained grimly silent after it happened?
